MIA travel update in response to the COVID-19 threat

MIA is working closely with its federal partners to ensure that passengers, employees and the community remain safe and that protocols are strictly followed in compliance with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines.

As of March 17, travel restrictions have been expanded to include the UK and the Republic of Ireland, affecting a total of 20 routes served by airlines at MIA, which are: Amsterdam, Barcelona, Copenhagen, Dublin, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Helsinki, Lisbon, London Heathrow, London Gatwick, Madrid, Milan, Munich, Oslo, Paris (CDG), Paris (Orly), Rome, Stockholm, Warsaw and Zurich.

Medical personnel contracted by the Department of Homeland Security is asking each passenger from these Level 3 European countries a series of health questions and performing random temperature checks before they enter the passport control area.

Passengers are encouraged to contact their airline to confirm their flight status, because various domestic and international flights have been cancelled due to the COVID-19 threat and schedules are subject to change.
